Nigh on genius
20 March 2019 | by Phil_M_A_KerrSee all my reviews

Quaint, quiet, quirky - call it what you will. It wore its heart on its sleeve and didn't pretend to be anything more than it was;- a personal tale about family and the effect of loss on those who remain. Even without all the crash, boom, bang of a tentpole blockbuster, a movie can still pack a punch. Moreso if it delves into the metaphysical. Bill Nighy is in top form but so are the supporting cast in less bombastic but crucial ... supporting roles. Alexei Sayles is surreal! Heaps of effort has gone into making the visuals of each 'simple' scene pop off the screen. You appreciate so much more of these modest films when you see them on the big screen. Do yourselves a favour. I laughed quite a bit too.
